Lemon Drizzle Loaf | ATypicalLife

thumbnail_IMG_5600Hey guys! You’re probably aware that i didn’t post on Wednesday again and today is Monday not Sunday but I think I’m gonna be just posting weekly again as I’ve been really busy and I was going to start posting every Sunday again when I get back to school anyway, (which is just over a week, please don’t make me go) I hope you don’t mind! Also, I’ve got a dance show next Sunday so I will probably be posting that post on Saturday instead so I don’t have to stress about it. Okay so now we’ve gotten all that out of the way, I thought I’d share an amazing recipe for a lemon drizzle loaf. I will put my hands up in saying that I have actually not made this before but I gave the recipe to my auntie and she made an absolutely amazing one so I thought I’d share the deliciousness with you

You will need:

  • A 22cm loaf tin
  • Greaseproof paper
  • Wooden spoon
  • A mixing bowl
  • A skewer


• 170g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing

• 170g caster sugar

• 3 eggs

• 170g self raising flower

• 1 teaspoon baking powder

• Zest of 2 lemons

For the drizzle

• 150g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

• Juice of 2 lemons


1-Preheat oven to 180’C/350’F/GM4. Lightly grease the loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper

2-Cream together the butter and sugar, then mix in the eggs

3- Add the flour, baking powder and lemon zest and mix until smooth and well combined

4- Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 30 minutes or until golden and risen and a skewer poked into the centre of the loaf comes out clean!

5- Mix together the icing sugar and lemon juice until smooth and the sugar has dissolved. While the loaf is still warm, poke holes into it with a skewer and pour over the drizzle

6- Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out into a plate and serve, dusted with icing sugar.

So there you have it!! That’s Tanya’s small but sweet recipe for lemon drizzle loaf. I can’t stress how good this tastes you should definitely try it out! also, let me know if you give it a go because I would love to know what you guys think of it!  I hope you enjoyed this post because I love reading recipes and thought I’d do one for you guys!

    Lemon is definitely one of my favorite flavors for baking. My favorite recipe is “Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins.” Deliciously delightful especially in the Fall of the year! Thanks for stopping by Laura’s Lens! x
